Chelsey Benkner

Owner | CTA®, VTA, CATP

Chelsey has long had a love affair with travel. She began traveling at a young age and went on her first international trip at 16. She has been to Asia, Europe, South America, and the Caribbean (many times – because who doesn’t love a lazy beach vacation?!). She fully believes in travel over things – memories will stick with you long after the fact. To her, travel helps expand horizons and fuel the idea that anything is possible. With over 20 years of experience with international travel and five years as a travel agent, she provides first-hand expertise and knowledge of the travel industry.

Chelsey holds various certifications in travel, including being a Certified Travel Associate (CTA®), Verified Travel Advisor (VTA), and Certified Autism Travel Professional (CATP), as well as holding many destination specialist certifications. She maintains her certifications through yearly continuing education – meaning she stays updated on the happenings in the travel industry.

Renee Nelson

Travel Advisor

Renee wears two hats: she’s a dedicated high school teacher by day and a passionate travel agent by night/weekends. Her love for learning & helping others is matched only by her role as a single mother to a proud and accomplished daughter who has recently started her career as a Registered Nurse.

Renee’s deep-rooted passion for travel has been nurtured since her teenage years, ignited by a memorable trip to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg with her mother. Her first cruise was on the Disney Dream in 2013, sparking her love for cruising, which she does at least three times a year. While she adores all forms of vacationing, her top three favorites are Cruising, Disney World, and any good beach destination.
